An application has been approved at Councils planning committee this afternoon after a two-hour debate for 6 modular classrooms in two single storey blocks, 31 car parking spaces, gas tank with surrounding enclosure, alterations to the existing internal road and associated landscaping.

MLA Maurice Bradley said: “I am pleased that common sense prevailed and the displaced pupils due to the closure of St. Joseph’s College, will be able to relocate to Loreto College to continue their education.”

“It is my belief that children’s education is paramount as a good level of education helps prepare our children for University, for work, and to take up membership in society.

“There is also a knock-on effect as the Northern Regional College will decamp to the empty St. Joseph’s College to allow building work to take place at Union Street.

“In an attempt to deal with traffic management

Proposals included: new bus lay-by; new parking extension to the frontage on the Castlerock Road; a new internal drop-off facility; a new internal road connection from the main college; associated directional signage; new pedestrian footpaths; all part of a Travel Plan submitted after the Planning Committee deferred the application recently.

“Thankfully, the application was approved today and I am confident that elected representatives on behalf of the objectors will continue to lobby DFI Roads to enhance safety measures and install an updated traffic management plan.
